Mice are relatively tiny rodents that are known to invade houses in Orange County, the Inland Empire, and San Diego County in search of food, water, and a protected environment in which to reproduce. They often break into houses when there has been a dramatic change in the weather.
In addition, residences located near vast open areas or homes that have just been constructed often have problems with these pests. Mice, much like rats, are scavengers that have adapted through time to survive off of the waste products of human activities. Mice, in contrast to rats, are much smaller and can fit through apertures that are much narrower. They often create greasy tracks as a result of the dragging of their bellies and tails.
Mice infestations often result in the introduction of other unpleasant pests such as fleas, bed bugs, and mites. In addition to this, the Hantavirus and the plague may be transmitted by the droppings and urine of these animals.
Mice have a high reproductive rate. Mice only have a short gestation period of a few weeks, and a single female mouse may produce anywhere from 100 to 200 offspring in a single year. In order to construct their nests in attics, garages, and sheds, they will gnaw through wiring, insulation, boxes, drywall, and a wide range of other common home goods.
What We Can Do for You
When we begin the process of ridding your property of mice, the first thing we will do is send an experienced, qualified, and state-licensed specialist to do a thorough inspection of your property in order to identify the scope and location of the infestation you are facing. After the cause of the infestation has been determined, we will tailor a treatment strategy to meet your requirements while staying within your financial constraints.
We get rid of mice by employing a variety of methods, including traps, adhesive boards, bait, and exclusion services. The baits and traps will be set up in locations that are out of reach for children and pets in the home. After the first treatment, we suggest establishing a regular treatment regimen in order to avoid mice from returning over the whole year.
We provide continuous services for the management of rodents on a monthly, bi-weekly, or quarterly basis, choosing the frequency based on the size of your property, the severity of the infestation, and your available funds. In the event that you find any mice between the regularly scheduled treatments, we will return at no additional cost to eradicate the infestation.
Sanitization & Deodorization
After the debris has been removed, the area will be cleaned in order to rid the building of any hazardous materials. When pests get access to the internal spaces of a building, such as an attic, the ceiling, or the walls, they often leave behind feces, droppings, urine, nesting material, birthing material, and other types of excrement, as well as ectoparasites and pathogens.
In order to prevent the tenants of the building from becoming ill or developing an illness, these contaminations, as well as the dirty insulation, need to be removed. In order to thoroughly repair the area, we will first remove any impurities and dirty insulation from it, then we will deodorize and sterilize the space, and finally, we will install new insulation.
